SPAA announces a Capital Campaign for a Three-Phase Improvement Plan at Bonin Field! 

The success of this endeavor will rely heavily on help from our local community. Bonin Field is a vibrant gathering spot nestled in the heart of St. Patrick. These improvement plans will ensure the long-term vitality of youth and adult baseball in St. Patrick for the next generation! 

 

Whether you have a deep connection to the community of St. Patrick, have played or know someone who has played St. Patrick Baseball, or perhaps you simply want to see a community project succeed, we kindly ask for you, your family, or place of business to consider a donation towards our projects.
